Ok well, its coming to the point where after the next 1 or 2 track days, I am going to need new brake rotors. I am now going to ask the forum's opinion on this expensive purchase. I have the OEM Brembo Kit and run Nismo pads on the street, Cobalt pads on the track.

Slotted, Drilled, both, or neither?

What brand?

Where to buy?

I am looking for the most bang for the buck not the best for track only, not the cheapest, but a good set of rotors that aren't rediculously overpriced. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I went with the Stop-Tech Stage II Brake upgrade.
Slotted Rotors - are the only way to go since you track your Z.
Comes with SS lines as well - you'll like them on the track for sure :thumbsup:

Ordered mine from Performance Nissan - got quick service & a "reasonable" price.

Best of luck on your search :werd:

Thanks for the advice. I would only need the rotors though because I already have SS lines and good fluid. Those are a little pricey, but so far, they are the only ones recomended to me on this and two other forums.

Buff! Shame on you... you should have bought that kit from one of our ZDayZ sponsors! Not knocking Performance Parts, they're a great bunch, but you could have gotten the parts just as quick and probably cheaper from one of the ZDayZ sponsors.

I would think any of the well known names would be better than OEM. I had KVR cadmium plated rotors on my Z32; loved them. They were cross drilled. However, I think this time around I will be getting slotted.

Hello,

I am new here, and would like to chime in, it may be of interest to you.

At RacingBrake we have replacement rotors for the 350Z, their curved vanes which pump more air and keep the disc cooler. Their directional rotors, you need a Left & Right. Let us know if you have any questions.

Also, We do offer other solutions aswell.

Want a cheap Brembo blank replacement? Check out Cobalt Friction- replacement rotors for the track editions for $99/piece I believe. Much much cheaper than anyone else out there and Cobalt seems to be a very good reputable company.

Has anyone priced the autozone rotors?? run aggressive pads on my cars (240sx, NASA Honda-Challenge, XR4Ti) and I truly do not care for the rotors especially halfway through the season and they are well past dead. I'm just wondering if those are even a minutely comparable source worth looking into. cheers-eh :cheers:
